Explosion That Injured at Least 29 an ‘Intentional Act,’ New York City Mayor Says

Good Morning America

An explosion in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night that injured at least 29 people appears to have been “an intentional act,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said, and a possible second device was removed several blocks away.

The mayor said that although investigators believe it was intentional, there appeared to be no link to terrorism.

The cause of explosion has not been determined, said New York City police commissioner James O’Neill.

There is no credible threat to the safety of New Yorkers, the officials added.
